Employment Tribunal Fees - Remission Statistics

  • Posted

written answer in the House of Commons has revealed that 24% of remission applications between 29th July and 31st December 2013 were granted (in part or in full).

Putting that in perspective, it amounts to remission being granted in just 5.5% of the 9,305 single claims and 1,519 multiple claim cases issued in that period.  In the original impact assessment for tribunal fees, the MOJ predicted that 31% of Claimants would be eligible for fees.

There is a full update on employment tribunal fees as part of the Employment Law MasterClass 2014.
